Is front oil seal changing is easy in 95 Ford Escort LX 1.9L? Since I
have removed crankshaft pulley, water pump, and suspecting that there
might be a small oil seepage in the front oil seal, Iam thinking of
changing it. I have 102K Miles on this escort and dont have any
history of oil seal change before.
My question is: Is the front oil seal is easy to change without any
oem tools to change the oil seal (I have a harmonic balencer/wheel
puller at hand to pull the crankshaft sproket)? Since the present seal
is OK, I donot want to open another can of worms.
The parts shop sales person said, its just easy to install and tap it
gently with rubber mallet. I am wonderting thats the right way to
install the oil seal and which way should it go. I can see a mettalic
spring going around that seal, it that side faces out or inside?
Thank you in advance
